With Qonto’s Financing partners, discover and quickly get access to financing that powers up your business. Here are some examples of the most common types of financing:
📈 Revenue-based Financing
Quickly secure funding by pledging a percentage of your future revenue or monthly turnover in exchange. The payment size is, therefore, proportional to revenue. This financing is non-dilutive, and payments are not fixed. Adjustable repayment schedules may be available.
💡 What is "non-dilutive" financing? As opposed to "dilutive" financing (contributions from partners, Business Angels, venture capital funds...), "non-dilutive" financing guarantees control of your company's share capital. You remain in control. Here are some examples of non-dilutive financing: credits, bank loans, grants, crowdfunding.
Quickly increase your working capital to power your growth needs. This financing usually lasts less than a year, and it enables you to cover your company’s working capital requirements.* Short-term financing can be helpful for short-term projects such as financing your stock, investing in marketing campaigns, covering unexpected costs, and more.
🧾 Invoice Financing
Invoice financing is a type of short-term financing that allows you to increase your cash flow by selling your unpaid invoices to a third party for a fee. With this financing, banks pay a certain percentage of your invoice, and when the customer pays off that invoice, you reimburse the bank and pay a service fee.
🏦 Business Loans
The most traditional form of financing: use loans to boost your cash flow to buy equipment and fund your projects. The borrowing institution lends you money, and in return you pay interest. Monthly payments are usually fixed.

*What is " working capital requirement? ” This financial aggregate is composed of 3 elements:
The amount of inventory needed to keep your business going: raw materials, merchandise, finished goods.
The amount of invoiced amounts to customers that you have not yet collected.
The amount of money you owe to your suppliers.
The Working Capital Requirement or "WCR" is calculated as follows, Inventories + Amounts invoiced to customers - Amounts due to your suppliers. There are two possible scenarios:
Your WCR is negative: you have a cash surplus, which allows you to self-finance your activity or to invest.
Your WCR is positive: you need cash to ensure the sustainability of your activities. Here, our partners can help you!
